Retirement is a new adventure for you and your partner. Starting fresh together will breathe new life into your relationship and moving to a residential park home is the place to start. There are so many new experiences and conversations waiting to be had!
Getting older doesn't mean we don't want and deserve romance in our lives. A healthy relationship with our partner is one of the main things that keeps us feeling young! Keeping it interesting, however, may take a little effort. Once we've reached retirement, we finally have the time and ability to make some changes to renew and invigorate our relationship with our significant other.
After years of being busy, working hard and raising a family, we tend to neglect our relationship with our significant other. We forget to do the little things that make it exciting and tend to get a little bored. We have the same conversations as there's nothing new to talk about. We even tend to continually interact with the same people.
Here are some ways that moving into luxury fully furnished park homes can rejuvenate your relationship:
Think of all the times you went on holiday together. How refreshed and alive you felt and how it invigorated your relationship. Living at a residential park home tends to have the same effect. It feels like a permanent holiday adventure.
Decorate your new home together
The fun part about moving to a new home with your partner is decorating it together. The homes do come fully furnished but there's nothing stopping you from adding your own personal touch! Working on a project together such as decorating a new home is fun and exciting and generally tends to bring people closer.
Meet new people together
Another bonus is making new friends! Meeting new people to talk to and socialise with makes life more interesting. Listening to their new stories and sharing your own with them is quite refreshing.
An interesting article from Psychology today talks about how meaningful relationships, among other things, positively affect retiree's happiness.
One of the first things you notice when you move into a residential park home is that you and your partner tend to talk to each other more. There's so much that's new around you that you want to discuss with each other!
Try out new restaurants
There are lovely towns surrounding the residential park homes waiting to be explored and new pubs and restaurants to visit and try out together! It's always fun to try new food with your partner.
New hobbies together
According to the American Psychological Association, staying active during retirement is better for our mental health (you can read more about it at apa.org/research/action/retire). While living in a residential park home, you're surrounded with so many new opportunities to try out new hobbies with your partner and even with the new friends you make! You can try new activities together such as gardening or painting, or you may even simply sit outside peacefully, each with a good book and each other.
Long strolls in nature
You can't resist the urge to roam around in the beautiful parks that surround our residential park homes. Exploring nature is one of the best ways to spend quality time together. Also, studies have shown that nature is good for our health and wellbeing,
Moving house can seem like a daunting task, but downsizing after retirement can be liberating for a couple.
